For Members

Allow me to specifically pause and say “thank you” to each and every member of our great Council. Your dedication and precision that arrives on every job site with you, everyday, is not only clearly recognized, but also very much appreciated.

The construction landscape has always been, and will continue to be, incredibly competitive. But we are busy and our members are providing a good quality of life for themselves and their families because each of you represents our Council and our craft with excellence. And that in turn earns market share.

So, “thank you” for your productivity, skill, safety, and attitude. The EMRC is a successful organization and you should be proud of your role in making that happen.

This member section is for your benefit. Here you will find resources to keep you up-to-date on Council operations, benefits, member news, work opportunities and more. Please let us know if you would like to see a section added, or if you have any information you’d like to share.

Yours in solidarity,

EST Robert Loubier
